LAMENTATIONS

Lamentation has one main theme:

The suffering that befell Jerusalem when Nebuchadnezzar captured the city in 586 B.C in a series of elegies, Jeremiah expresses his inconsolable grief over the city’s agony and anguish. The first laments describe and explain Jerusalem afflictions in general terms. The second describes the disaster in greater details.

It emphases that the city’s destruction is a divine judgment upon sin. Some under-lying factors in this judgment are elucidated in the third lament. The fourth underlines some lesson, which Jerusalem has learned from the judgment.  The fifth and final lament (more accurately a prayer) describes how Jerusalem sufferings have led her to cast herself upon divine mercy and to hopes that the Lord will again be gracious to Israel now purified in the crucible of affliction.

Because Lamentations deals with suffering as judgment upon sin, the afflicted believer has found in it the language of his confession, self­ humiliation and innovation.
